Something has happened.
..No. Not that.
Something else, though.
Like bacon-dipped-in-Nutella amazing.
But maybe even better…
Every blogger and their infertile brother wrote a post (or posts) on their interpretation of said theme, including yours truly.
Well, the lovely folks at RESOLVE have been reading through those posts since early May, choosing their favorites and narrowing down their top five.
Out of over 130 other blogs submitted.
And guess what?
This blogger right here has been chosen as part of that group.
I am one of the top five nominees for the Hope Award for Best Blog!
I can’t even believe how amazing that is!
I’m just a girl who rants about her busted plumbing on the interwebs… I’m no one! Nothing!
I’m just one of the barren masses!
I’m one in a whole slew of other women (and men!) doing the same thing, albeit they are expressing themselves more eloquently than I could ever aspire to do myself.
Apparently though, someone over at RESOLVE liked what I had to say… And I’m not arguing.
I’m honored and humbled and just plain happy about it.
Thank you, RESOLVE!
Now here’s the fun part, the part where you come in.
The winner of the Hope Award for Best Blog is chosen by the number of votes they receive from the public.
Voting opens Wednesday, July 10th, and one vote per email address is allowed.
Voting ends on July 17th, and the winner will be announced in August.
The winner of the Hope Award for Best Blog will win a trip to New York City to the 16th annual Night of Hope dinner in November, where they will be presented with their award in front of a big, fancy, dressed-up audience!
In New York!
An awards dinner, y’all!
Isn’t that just so fancy-schmancy you could die??
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to be nominated, though I know that the competition is quite stiff.
The other nominees are inspiring bloggers and writers (one of them has written a book!), and I’m honored even to be on the same list with them.
I won’t pretend to be confident about my chances at this thing, but I know that I also won’t ever forget the realization that what I wrote meant something to someone; someone who thought it was worthy of sharing with the whole Infertility World, and possibly worthy of winning an amazing award.
That’s pretty terrific, right there.
And so, I am asking you, my friends, my family, my sisters of the busted pipes…
Will you vote for me?
Click here to go to the voting site, and be sure to read the other bloggers’ entries, too!
One vote per email address is allowed, and sharing of this link on social media is encouraged – any publicity for the infertile masses is a good thing, and these blog posts are the cream of the advocating crop!
Thank you all – so much – for your encouragement and support…
…And for your votes.
Because you love me.
